Wayne Rooney has spoken honestly about what he’s been going through over the past month and is hoping that football will help him.

“It’s obviously been a hard time but I just need to try to get back to doing what I do best, and playing football the way I can do,” he said. “I’m only a human being, I hurt as well, but I need to get through this and get back to playing football the way I know I can do and I’m sure everything else will settle down after that.”
